Updated Sisters Together Program Guide


The NIDDK releases updated guide for Sisters Together: Move More, Eat Better Program 


More than 1 in 3 U.S. adults and more than 1 in 2 U.S. black women have obesity. This excess weight increases the risk for diabetes, kidney disease, heart disease, and other serious health problems.
To help address obesity, the NIDDK has updated its Sisters Together: Move More, Eat Better Program Guide (PDF). Sisters Together is a national health awareness program that encourages black women ages 18 and older to reach and maintain a healthy weight by being more physically active and making healthier food choices.
Do you see a need in your community and want to help? The Sisters Together program guide describes six steps to start, promote, fund, evaluate, and sustain a health awareness effort, and highlights other programs developed by different groups around the country. In the guide, you’ll also find sample forms, letters, emails, and social media posts that you can copy and modify to suit your specific needs.
Learn More about Sisters Together, the program guide, and related health information resources on NIDDK.gov.
